In light of the recent health alerts regarding the Coronavirus, we would like to assure you that the centres of the Instituto Cervantes in UK (Leeds, London and Manchester) remain open, with courses and events continuing as usual. We are keeping track of any new information or advice from Public Health England, the NHS and UK Government on the matter and will adopt any recommendations accordingly. Likewise, we urge the responsibility of our students to follow the hygiene measures and indications recommended by the British health authorities:
Furthermore, due to the risk of spread of the COVID-19 virus, it is requested by both the UK and Spanish health authorities that any person who has recently travelled to China (mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao), Singapore, South Korea, Iran or Italy shall self-isolate themselves at home for a period of 14 days on their return. This applies as well to any person who has been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus.
If any of the abovementioned situations apply to you, we would be grateful if you could inform us. We will then alert the HSE and follow their recommendations on risk assessment. We will implement any measures and treat any specific case following the advice of the appropriate authorities.
The health and wellbeing of our staff and students remains our top priority and we will continue monitoring the situation and acting upon the information made available to us by the HSE.
